An abstract botanical gold painting of some Seedheads 60x60cm


A dramatic and glamorous abstract painting of  some seed-heads and wild grasses against a gold background. This painting looks a million dollars with the light shining on it! It is an original painting that is partially digital and partially handpainted with gold ink.


Jo Sharpe’s Contemporary Botanical Paintings

This abstract botanical gold painting of some seedheads forms part of my botanical paintings range. Using creativity, innovation, several artistic skills and the latest digital technology,  I have developed these paintings from my modern botanical prints.

My botanical prints collection started  in 2016 with a series inspired by Cornish hedgerows. These are a series of digitally manipulated art prints that are really beautiful and innovative and quite different from my natural painting style. Recently I have wanted to develop these further by turning them into large paintings. So,  firstly my contemporary botanical paintings are digitally manipulated photographs, that have been printed onto canvas . Secondly, they are painted over the top with either several layers of acrylic or oil paint. Sometimes I hand paint over everything and sometimes I just paint the background. Often 3 coats of paint needs to be applied.

These are original contemporary works of art that alongside my Bespoke Art Cushions look fantastic and fashionable in interiors . Using my textile background I have created a coordinating range of home furnishings that can make your home look interior designed. I can accept special orders and colour match backgrounds to suit clients tastes.

Inspired by Nature

These seedheads were gathered from Queen Mary’s Woods in Carshalton Beeches and are a place I visit regularly on one my many walks.  They are particularly beautiful as Sutton Nature Conservation Volunteers have done a marvellous job by planting many species of wild flowers and grasses. Queen Mary’s Woods have inspired several other artworks. These are: contemporary botanical teal paintinng of Queen Mary’s Woods and The deer in Queen Mary’s Woods.
